The Regions Bank Building, previously known as the Merchants National Bank Building and the First Alabama Bank Building, is a high-rise in the U.S. city of Mobile, Alabama. Completed in 1929, the building rises 236 feet (72 m) and 18 stories. Upon its completion, the Merchants National Bank Building became the tallest building in Mobile, the seventh-tallest building in the state of Alabama, and the tallest skyscraper in the state outside Birmingham. The building remained the tallest in the city until the completion of the RSA–BankTrust Building in 1965. The Regions Bank Building now stands as the 6th-tallest building in Mobile.
The Regions Bank Building, designed by Chicago-based architectural firm Graham, Anderson, Probst & White, is an example of Art Deco architecture. It has a distinctive copper-plated pyramidal roof structure; the height to the base of the pyramid is 190 feet (58 m).
